Another member of Minnesota's congressional delegation has received the Saturday Night Live treatment.

In last night's episode, SNL cast member Ego Nwodim played Rep. Ilhan Omar in "The Women of Congress," a Charlie's Angel's-like sendup that also features over-the-top depictions of representatives Nancy Pelosi and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, among others.

Omar, who represents Minnesota's 5th Congressional District, is depicted as "Ilhan 'Get the Hi-Job Done' Omar," a play on the headscarf she wears. 

"When Ted Cruz sees me, he crosses the street," she boasts.
